Plenty of Newcastle fans have responded angrily to a new sign that has been put at St. James’ Park.
While this may not be the gripping of stories – it seems to have gripped many United fans, with many fans not being very happy about it, for quite a few reasons.
The snazzy new sign simply shows fans where a few key locations are, however, when the popular fan account @NewcastleFansTV tweeted about it, the response was massively negative.
What should the club do with Colback in January?
Look to sell him
Bring into 25-man squad
Lots of fans responded to the tweet with a variety of problems. Many noted that the sign was actually incorrect, stating that the arrows are pointing in the wrong direction as they should be forward rather than left. Others joked that Steve Bruce’s budget for the January window has now evaporated because of the sign – as you can read below…
Transfer budget gone now

And poorly designed – arrows should be straight ahead

Can we not have a good striker instead please? Maybe one that actually scores more than one goal in 16 games!!

So Bruce’s budget gone then?

Surprised it’s not bordered with SD logo

Worst direction ever

It’s been a funny season for Newcastle thus far. Despite performances not being particularly inspiring, the table simply doesn’t lie. Nearly halfway through the season and the Magpies are just two points short of fifth place and 10 points better off than they were last year.
While frustrations can be understood with Benitez’s departure, on the field, fans don’t really have anything to complain about given the tools Bruce has had to deal with.
